Our Leadership

Board of Directors       

President - Dr. Helen Cluett has a BSc ('82) from McGill University and an MD ('87) from Queen's University. She did her family medicine training at the University of Western Ontario and started working in family practice in Toronto in 1989. She worked for a few years around the turn of the millennium as a GP-psychotherapist. After deciding to return to family practice, she joined the Scrivens-French practice in Wellington in 2005 and has been an enthusiastic supporter of the Prince Edward Family Health Team since that time. Like many of her colleagues on the PEFHT board, she is an adjunct faculty member at Queen's University.

 

 

     Dr. Don Koval 

Dr. Gord Holton:  joined the PEFHT in 2010 when he moved from Brooks, Alberta, a culturally diverse, isolated rural community. Many of the services provided by the PEFHT mirrored a program envisioned in Alberta but which was not achieved; he reports that, in many ways, the programming support provided by PEFHT seemed like "Welcome home" for the first time. Dr. Holton looks forward to applying his range of medical and administrative experiences gained in Alberta to the new challenges offered on the board of the PEFHT.   

Dr. Anne Nancekievill graduated from the University of Western Ontario's School of Medicine in 1988 and completed her Residency in Family Medicine at the University of Ottawa in 1990. She then moved to Picton to join her husband, Dr Steve Blanchard . She currently currently shares a Family Practice office with Dr Blanchard, and in addition, works collaboratively with NP Carol Hobbs. She is an assistant professor in the Department of Family Medicine at Queens University, consults and runs clinics for the Healthy Sexuality Program at the Hastings and Prince Edward Health Unit, and serves as Medical Director of H J McFarland Memorial Home in Picton

 

Dr. Negine Nahiddi

David W. Smith:   David is a lawyer and retired senior tax partner of Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP of Toronto, who is currently enjoying retired life in Prince Edward County.
